1) I got done with the Trials and battled a bunch of monsters on my way to the Volcano but never once had a familiar pop back up with hearts. I even got the quest from the Derwin guy in town to catch two specific ones and they didn't pop back up. Do I need to do something specific like land the finishing blow with the girl, or has the actual ability to catch familiars not opened up yet until after the Volcano or something? I heard many familiars had a capture rate of something like 25% so I really should have seen one by now I think.

2) Early in the game at Ding Dong Dell I noticed a green chest off a ledge. As soon as I could get the "jump" command I did and tried to jump off the ledge to no avail. Also tried the Puppeteer spell but nothing. What spell do I need and how late in the game do I get it? Or is this just decoration to distract me?

-1 when you see hearts on top of a monsters head, switch to the girl and use serenade skill.
-2 merit badges has a jump as a reward. Could be that, not sure haven't got it yet but saw the chest

Uh can't really answer your first one since I forgot about it. But for the green chest you gotta wait till you get to castaway cove. There you'll get swaine to join you, he has a gun that allows you to open green chests from a distance. So it's not for decoration and you can always return to ding dong dell to open it once swaine joins you.

The green chests you need the third party member for, I read.

Does other AI ever kill the monster when you're trying to tame them? If so, I foresee much raging ahead.

Not what I'm asking but thanks. I know they have hearts over their head to catch them, but they always just die and then don't jump back up with the hearts like they are supposed to. And I know about jump, as I said I used it and it is not how you get down there if you can get down there at all.

You get a character with a gun who shoots the green ones.

Blue - Spell
Purple - Spell with a good wand (haven't been able to open one of these yet)
Green - Shoot

If there are any others I haven't seen them.
I have coke fueled threesomes with Aikman and Irvin

I think the AI stops fighting because the monster is supposed to be defeated first, then you have to switch to the girl and use the harp before they run off (they run away after a while once the hearts pop up, according to the sage).
